Fashion in general can be defined as something that entices people to follow and emulate it in their day-to-day life. For students, fashion means glittering dresses, sparkling jewellery and immaculate hairstyles. They associate fashion with the world of glamour and many aspire to create a name for themselves in the world of fashion by pursuing this field of study. To do so, one might need admissions to notable institutions and financial means in form of fashion scholarships.
It’s a general conception that education in the field of fashion is quite a costly affair. Many students drop out of the course in the middle as they find themselves unable to pay the high tuition fee of the course.
To curtail the dropout rates and retain the bright and creative minds in the field, government as well as private entities have introduced a number of fashion scholarships schemes for students. Some of those scholarships for fashion students are listed as below.
